Publisher's Summary

Buddha can improve your athletic performance and life.

Connect spirituality to sports. The Competitive Buddha is about mastery, leadership, and spirituality. Learn what you need to keep, what you need to discard, and what you need to add to your mental, emotional, and spiritual skill set as an athlete, coach, leader, parent, CEO, or any other performer in life. Understand how Buddhism can help you to be better prepared for sports and life, and how sports and life can teach you about Buddhism. 

On the court, field, and beyond. Lynch sheds light on the positive aspects of competition, adding Eastern thought and spirituality to sport, while elevating competitors and the game. 

Become a master coach of your own life. When it comes to leadership and coaching, The Competitive Buddha teaches how the best coaches today use the ancient methods for our modern times, especially when it comes to the concept of Servant Leader. Learn specific strategies and techniques for implementing this special way to guide and lead.

I wanted to love this book.

Too much: “this is who I have worked with.”
Very little real substance. Disappointing, I was hoping for more!

Buddhism as Motivation and an author that wants to you to know he’s done a lot

I had high hopes coming in with this book, but struggled to make it through the entire thing. The author uses Buddhism as a form of mental motivation and spends as much time telling you about how he has helped over 100 teams win championships as how to use Buddhist techniques. Would not recommend

A memoir of how great Jerry Lynch is.

We get it, You are amazing and helped a ton of coaches and famous athletes. This should be titled, “The Success I Achieved After Writing Thinking Body, Dancing Mind.”
